Sketching Crayons - Conté à Paris
Developed in France at the end of the 18th century by Nicolas-Jacques Conte, these popular, lightfast, square shaped pastels are harder and waxier than traditional soft pastels. They are easy to blend and versatile: using the edges for detail or on the side for shading.
Suitable for use on a variety of surfaces, their rich opacity makes them particularly effective on darker coloured paper. The range now includes two special tints for portraits as well as crayon sets.
